We spent one night here on our way home from Utah. I have to say that I don't think the park is worth the money. Our nightly fee looked like this: basic rate = $42, add-on pet fee = $5, add-on Wi-Fi fee = $6. The park was clean and orderly, but then we were the only campers in the place. My wife used the pool (unheated) and hot tub. I spent almost 2 hours after our arrival on the phone to their Wi-Fi provider trying to get service to my site (after my credit card was charged but no service provided). Our site was nothing more than a gravel parking lot, although they do have some more expensive sites fronting the Colorado River.

We spent one night here on our way home to Arizona. It's a pretty nice park, with level pull-thru sites. Every site has a shade structure, which is good, for there are very few trees. We didn't use the hot springs, but others were. The Mens Room was partially torn apart and the one toilet available was clogged. A plunger was sitting in the stall for one's use. Hmmmm..... We reserved our site by phone about noon and prepaid by credit card. We arrived at 4:30 and, although the office was supposed to be open until 5:00, the Ranger had already closed out the cash register. Since we couldn't pay the Entrance Fee by phone or in-person, he said to stop by the office on our way out. The next morning we awoke to a ticket on our windshield warning us of a robust fine if we didn't pay by 9:00 a.m. When we arrived at the Office, the staff member there claimed we hadn't paid for our site or our Entrance Fee. Thank God I saved the receipt from the night before; and after much hacking on her computer, she finally found record of our payment. It kind of left a bad taste in my mouth....I guess we'd go back. Not sure.

The best thing about this park is its WiFi, which was strong and very useable. The sites themselves are level and the power was good. The two water connections at our site both squirted major water from the faucet handle itself, which was a waste of a needed resource in Texas. The park is filled with trash and "stuff" lying about. They lock the showers and restrooms at dusk, which they failed to mention when we checked in. But the worst thing is the train noise, which went all night. We got very little sleep here...and I am usually not bothered by train noise. But the park is only about 25 feet from some very busy tracks. We would not stay here again.

We did an overnight here on our way to the Panhandle beaches. The upper campground for RV's is level, with many treeless sites. It was quiet and the restrooms were clean. The three pools looked great, although we did not use them. All-in-all, it's a pretty good place.

We had a nice stay here and plan to return. We were in the Beach camping area, where the back-in was a little challenging (i.e., narrow roadway, posts and fence), but we made it. Site was wide enough for awning and slide. Restroom was new and spotless. The beach is beautiful....great for walking and shelling. Nice place.

We loved this park, for its beautiful native vegetation and for the wonderful white sand beach. We stayed in the Gulf Breeze loop, but when we return we'll try for the Shady Pine section. The latter has wonderful shade and great vegetation. The boardwalk connecting the 2 campgrounds provides a beautiful walk. The beach is to die for...with few people on it. This is a quiet and sane section of the Florida coast.....about the best we've seen.

We spent 5 nights at this park and liked it. It had been described to us as "...like a country club," and that description is pretty accurate. The grounds are beautiful; lots of lawn (well mowed and clipped) and pretty natural vegetation. Our site faced the bay, which afforded a sunset view. Sites are pretty private. Some sites look very difficult to back into and the roads are very narrow, with overhanging trees, in places. We reserved a site that looked like a reasonable back-in, which proved to be true. There is a nice walking beach, as well as a dog friendly park. All-in-all, a good place.

We did not like this park and will not return. We had to divert from our best route across Texas to stay there, so we started calling at noon to see if they had a space available. We called 4 times between noon and 4:30 and no one answered nor did they return our call. We decided to "risk it" and just drive in. Upon arrival, they indicated that they had spaces available; but when they found out that we were Passport America patrons, they suddenly had no spaces available. We had to argue with the check-in people to get them to honor PA, and they ended up giving us what seasonal neighbors indicated was the "worst space in the park." One that apparently is seldom in use. It was unlevel (big time) both side-to-side and front-to-back. We couldn't get the 5'er near level. The unit next door had an add-on porch that was 6 inches from the side of our RV. No place for an outdoor mat nor room for an awning to go out. Then there was the traffic noise--fellow campers roaring in and out early in the morning (e.g., 5:00 a.m.) and late at night. The next morning, we counted 19 unfilled pull-through sites, all level and much larger than ours. All-in-all, a bad place and a bad stay.

We spent 5 nights here, waiting for RV repair parts to be shipped. The park is packed with oil workers, who come and go at all hours. The park is wooded with some grassy areas. There is a pretty good sized play yard for dogs. Our site was level, but just barely long enough to handle both the RV. The grounds were pretty well kept and the long-term residents did not have a ton of junk lying around. It's Odessa, so you do kept some odor from the nearby petroleum plants.

We spent several days in this park, which has great proximity to the Skyline Drive. Our pull-thru site was very large and pretty level. No WiFi here except at the office. Showers are odd pull-chain operations. Two sites across from us had 8 adults and 9 children. Very noisy. Lots of shade here which was good because the weather was warm.

We spent a night here on our way home to New England. This is a very nice park, with beautiful grounds. Flowers in bloom everywhere. The pull-thru sites are level and spacious. Some are shaded, some not. Utilities worked well and the WiFi was adequate. The owner personally cooks waffles for you each morning. We'll stay here again.

This is a large and well maintained park. Lots of grass (neatly mowed) and many amenities (e.g., game rooms, pools, walking trails, etc.). We had major rainstorms while there and each morning the staff was immediately out re-grading roads, filling in washouts, etc. This was very good. The Wi-Fi signal at our site was very weak, making access to the Internet nearly impossible. The park is located near I-76, so there is traffic noise.

Date of Stay:

This park provides a classic example of a "gravel parking lot." But given how hard it rained while we were there, I was saying "Thank God" for the gravel! On the positive side, the pull-thru sites are level and the utilities worked well. We found the WiFi to be excellent. The park is very close to I-84 so the traffic noise was major. The restrooms were not clean and the park is devoid of any positive ambiance. There is a lot of junk piled around and some run-down permanent trailers. Not sure we'd stay here again.

We pulled in here on a summer afternoon this fall, and were immediately struck by the beauty of the trees that are all over this park. They were just starting to turn yellow and were beautiful in the afternoon sun. Our overnight here was good. The park is neat, quiet/orderly, and mowed/groomed. There are a few long-term residents, but their sites were devoid of the junk/stuff you often see scattered about. No cable, but okay local TV. Restrooms were spotless.

This is a pretty good park, with lots of pull-through sites. The sites were wide enough for slides and outdoor seating, but not terribly private. It is situated up on a hill, so you have some mountain and city light views. The park was clean and well kept. The bathrooms were clean. We found the cable to be okay, but the Wi-Fi was awful (i.e., slow and kept cutting out). It's several blocks off the highway, so quiet at night. No trains!
